An Important Note About Root Canals and the Film “Root Cause”
A composite or white (tooth-colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.
Because composite fillings are tooth-colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth, and are more aesthetically suited as well as better matched to natural teeth for long-lasting function.
Gold fillings, also called inlays or onlays, are composed of an alloy of gold, copper and other metals and is usually considered the most durable, lasting 20 years or more.Wondering which filling is best for you? Call Dr. Daderian to evaluate your current situation.
